The grants support Master’s and Doctoral students from across Canada who are involved in early-onset and late-onset asthma research. The initiative not only advances promising research, but also fosters the next generation of outstanding asthma researchers in Canada.

“Through this awards program, we are enabling graduate students to investigate better management practices and treatments, as well as to search for a cure for asthma, a condition that affects more than three million Canadians,” said Vanessa Foran, President & CEO of Asthma Canada.
